That would probably work, although the efficiency wouldn't be known until it was tried. The stove is 2.25" in diameter, and the side port holes are about 1.5" up from the bottom. The flames might be coming out under the center plate with the hold in it, but you could place the stove on top of something to raise it so the side port holes were just above the center plate in the screen/stand. Trick little setup it looks like.

Gave the Son In Law a Simmer and a Stever stove with a bottle of heet for his birthday since he is getting into backpacking. I left the instructions in the box for him, and also told him to give it a try at night, outside since the flame can be hard to see. The next weekend my daughter tells me the story of how he tried it out the next morning in the living room, burning all the hair off one of his arms and putting two burn spots in the sofa skirt.

Can you throw a "Listen to the Father-In-Law" clause in the instructions.... I admit I was worried of a flaming dog running around their yard when I gave it to him.

He does like the stoves and can't wait to try them out on his next trip, I just hope it's raining so there is no forest fire.

Thanks

found this cool "snakeoil" bottle at my mum's place:
My first thought were to try to make a miniature "steverstove" copy, just for the heck of it.
Then I got the idea to use it as a fuel bottle instead. It'll hold 3 fillings if one fills up to just below the sharp radius in the inner neck in the stove.

Stever Stove in Action!

I'm gearing up for a ride to the Kootenay Rockies, Banff, Jasper, Waterton, Glacier and then home. Looking at about 1800 miles when all is said and done, mostly camping.

I wanted to have some sort of windscreen for the stove and looked around. I found:

The Sterno collapsible stove at Bi-Mart for $6.99:



I set it up:



There was a fairly large gap between the grate and the stove, plus the base to set the stove on was too wide and would not work. What to do? I found that a 1 cup measuring cup provided the best spacing:



How the stove looks set up:



Now for the test! There is a smallish gap between top of stove and where the pan sits (the width of the support rods, about the size of a shirt hanger). Will it work? Took a bit more to get it fired up. I found I need to let it burn a minute, maybe help out and light the jets. Otherwise setting the pan on top put out the flame. Once the jets are burning, set the pan on and cover:



The verdict? 2c cold water boiled in under 5 mins. time. I'm stoked!!! This little guy will cook whatever I need/want on my trip to the Canadian Rockies.

Oh, and SPOT track and trip report to be on my blog, The Palouse Caboose. Headed out next Thursday afternoon.

Steve, thanks for a great little stove. I second the recommendation to use the yellow bottle Heet. It burns hot and clean.

When I look at Bi-mart, I do not see the stoves in the on-line catalogue. Is it named something else? I love how it looks and would love to get one.

This is it. At Amazon, however.

http://www.amazon.com/Sterno-Single-...2069545&sr=8-1

I've only tested it at home, but I'm pretty pleased with the solid base it provides for pans. It also looks like it will give good wind protection

Thumb Polar brand antifreeze works

Got my two stoves a week ago. Bought some Heet and tried them out. They worked great. Yesterday I was in Tractor Supply and found that they had the Polar brand Methanol based antifreeze on clearance for $.49/ea. bought a couple bottles and tried it out today. Worked just like the Heet brand only a lot less $. Heated up a can of chilli for lunch today on the simmer stove. Nice and bubbling hot in the can ready to go. Looking forward to trying it out on the trail.

I'm headed out tomorrow for the Kootenays, Jasper and Banff with a return over the Going to the Sun Road through Glacier National Park. I'll be taking my two Stever Stoves - the regular and simmer - with me. Looking forward to trying them out on the road. One of my travel partners seems skeptical and I want to see his reaction when he sees these little guys in action.

Here's a link to a travel blog i hope to update, assuming i can find free WiFi along the way My SPOT tracking link is embedded.

Nothing there until I start transmitting data on Thursday.

If you page down, to “Links” there is a link to my photo sharing site where I’ll post photos.

Here's an alternate link to just the SPOT track:

I admit it...

I am a gear whore.
Got directed here from another stove thread. After reading through it all, I'm convinced. So...PayPal sent for two, one Simmer one Stever.
We'll see how it compares with my Trangia burner. I'll bet it (the SteverStove) works better.
